CHRISTCHURCH VESTRY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 18 April 1868

GHRISTCHURCH VESTRY MEETING. It appears that tlie hunied report given in our last issue of the Chriateiuiroh Yustry mooting, and which, wo tuny mention, was communicated, does not, in some respects, accurately represent what took place. After tho reception and passing of tho accounts and tho election of Mr. J. Htumell and Mr. E. Parnell us churchwardens for tho ensuing year,' the incumbent of the parish said that ho desired to bring before tho vo3try the question of the ap propriation of a sum of £100, which was now standing to tho credit of the Vestry at one of the banks. This monev was nart of a surnlus which was found to tho credit of tho Vestry on Esistor Tuesday, lSiJi). It hud then, by vote of Vestry, been placed at interest iu one of the banks as a ''^'J'fliti *?? '???'''?rda it buildiiiL' Mild.

AMATEUR CONCERT AT THE CITY HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 18 April 1868

AMATEUR CONCERT AT THE CITY HAIX. ' As briefly intimated in our issue of Wednes day, a grand amateur concert, given undor tho auspices of the City'HuH Company, took place in tlie largo hall of the City Hall, on Tuesday last. The room was .well filled, notwithstanding the unfavourable ataje of the weather, which,, doubtleas, kept many persons away. The hall wa3 neatly and tastefully decorated for the occa sion, and great credit, is due to the stewards for the comfortablo arrinjgetnents both in tho body of the hall and on Ih9. stage. The first part of tlie concert opened with the glee ' See our Oar*' as a auintetta.

COLONIAL GROWN SUGARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 18 April 1868

COLONIA-L-GROWN SUGARS. From the Bmvire, April 14. By tlie Hannah, schooner, from Port Mac qunrie, there lias beo.n imported into Sydney, three tons of sugar of colonial growth. It has been mnunfuctuivd by Mr. Tliounts Meares, of the Hastings River, and is of excellent quality, being dry, of good colour and taste, and much resembling what are termed Mauritius crystals. It is the first commercial result that has sprung from the recently directed cuterpti.se of the settler of our Northern coast districts, and may be hailed us the forerunner uf a great nnd important industry. The quantity im ported represents the production of one acre of ground, and as the sugar will probably realise from £'65 to j£-10 per ton, it will be seen how profitable an investment may be made in itscultivatiou and manufacture. It is indeed impossible to overestimate the dcvolopinent of this important branch of industry, for to the most cautious capitalist, it must be evident that from the production of a mater...

THE TREASON FELONY ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 18 April 1868

THE TRBASOtf -FELONY ACT From the Australasian. ?? In the preservation of that political liberty and souial freedom \yliich nre dear to till of us, it is, perhaps, well that we in Victoria have been prevented by extraneous circumstances from rushing into the hasty legislation which the momentary excitement has produced iu the neighbouring colony. Not satisfied with RCCOlllUg Ui LI1O leijUC-Sb 111 LIIU uimit; UUUIIUILI/Ivri iu respect to the Treason-Felony Bill, the New South Wales Welshmen have out-Horoded Herod, and placed an Act upon their Statute book which may easily become thu instrument of tyrannical oppression. Freedom of speech has long been considered one of the noblest privileges of a Britou, and we have as yet no proof of any such wide-spread disaffection existing hero as would warrant us in seriously abridging that noble privilege. We believe that the same may be said of New South Wales, and that after a few weeks the repre sentatives of that colony will bo heartily asha...
